Caption: Ting's charmed particle discovery lecture at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory, in 1974. US physicist Samuel Ting (born 1936) was one of the recent co-discoverers of charmed particles (specifically the J/psi meson). He and others had carried out this work earlier in the year at particle accelerators in the USA (Ting worked at Brookhaven National Laboratory). The ground-breaking discovery revolutionised particle physics as part of what is now known as the 'November Revolution'. The results were announced on 11 November 1974. Here, Ting is lecturing to a packed audience at CERN on 21 November 1974. Two years later, Ting shared the 1976 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery.
